Not too bad

Workable chaos, coffee average
Hmmm. This place was chaotic, not in a bad way, after all, it seemed to work in terms of getting food out.
The attention to detail (quickly helping pay their bills at the counter, getting coffee out quickly) though was lacking.
I was left waiting for a lengthy period for coffee, in a place that had maybe 15 people?
Anyway, didn't try the food, but the kitchen is in full view (something I like sometimes, but other times I don't want to see what's going on) and the food looked pretty good actually.
To the coffee, because that's what we're all here for.
Coffee looked good, but was average, i.e. passable.
My request for a double ristretto drew a blank stare - "oh, just make it an espresso".
There are a couple of places on Highett Rd, and I'm yet to try the others, but looking in the window, I think I'll die wondering.
Best bet here is to shoot down Bluff Rd to Odo in Black Rock, or head into Sandringham or Hampton. If they're too far though, you might luck out for an acceptable coffee here (I don't much like coffee lottery though!).
PS, ripping website from these guy though.
And boy do they have an decent website, everything is there, menus, open hours etc. THAT shows attention to detail.
